Nationally recognized visual artist and educator Tyanna J. Buie [MFA ’10], will visit The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) campus next month.
Buie is an Assistant Professor/Section Chair of Printmaking at The College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI. She will serve as a visiting artist on the UAH campus March 3-9. Buie will give a talk on Thursday, March 7, at 5 p.m. in Wilson Hall room 168.
During her UAH presentation, Buie will speak about her creative research in creating large-scale contemporary artworks that use the artistic techniques of screen-printing, a stencil method of printmaking. The event is free and open to the public.
Katie Baldwin, UAH Assistant Professor of Printmaking, who was instrumental in coordinating Buie’s visit to campus, explains the importance of her work.
“I am thrilled to have Professor Tyanna Buie share her artwork with our students and community,” said Baldwin. “Through her bold, beautiful work in screen-printing, Professor Buie reconstructs her personal family history by combining narrative imagery with overlapping colors and patterns. The result is monumental work that speaks to the elusive nature of memory. However, the work is not simply nostalgic, as it pieces together the complexity of real-life experience,” Baldwin added.
